It’s not exactly been an easy climb since then, but it is a centennial we must acknowledge. So Cultural HERstorian Amy Simon, the woman behind the play She’s History: The Most Dangerous Women in America, Then & Now” joins me to regale us with some fabulous female stories about the women who came before us.
